OpenStack revenues to grow at a 35% CAGR and exceed $5bn by 2020

Private cloud revenue will overtake public cloud revenue by 2019 for service providers

Ahead of the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, 451 Research has published its latest findings about OpenStack. In the most rigorous analysis of its kind, 451 Research’s Market Monitor service expects revenue from OpenStack business models to exceed $5bn by 2020 and grow at a 35% CAGR.

To date, OpenStack-based revenue has been overwhelmingly from service providers offering multi-tenant IaaS, but the latest research indicates that private cloud revenue will exceed public cloud by 2019.

451 Research Finds OpenStack and Commercial Private Clouds Can Beat Public Cloud on Cost – But Only at Scale

In the latest Cloud Price Index, 451 Research analyzes the costs associated with using various cloud options to determine when it becomes better value to use a self-managed private cloud instead of public or managed cloud services. Now, for the first time, cloud buyers and vendors have transparency into a complex pricing model that takes into consideration the major factors impacting total cost of ownership (TCO), including salaries and workload requirements.

451 Research finds that because of the prevalence of suitably qualified administrators, commercial private cloud offerings such as VMware and Microsoft currently offer a lower TCO when labor efficiency is below 400 virtual machines managed per engineer. But where labor efficiency is greater than this, OpenStack becomes more financially attractive. In fact, past this tipping point, all private cloud options are cheaper than both public cloud and managed private cloud options.

Has AWS Won the Cloud?

There is no denying that AWS is the dominant public cloud provider at the moment. Does creating differentiation give other IaaS vendors, hosters, and private cloud and colocation providers a chance to compete tomorrow, and what does this mean for the choices end-users make today?

Please join Research Director Owen Rogers and Research VP Al Sadowski for a webinar on November 16th, where they will use Cloud Price Index data to connect the dots between customer requirements and best execution venues, as well as highlight where service providers should compete or cooperate with the hyperscale providers, by exploring:
Is there room for more hyperscale providers?
How important are open source solutions such as OpenStack going forward?
TCO of public, private or hybrid cloud options
